New Workshop Coming In October: “De-Identifying Human Subject Data For Sharing”

Save This October Date!

One of our many Sheridan Library pals David Fearon, along with Librarian for Data Services Jen Darragh are presenting a new workshop on October 12th.

This session provides an overview of techniques for assessing disclosure risk and removing personal identifiers from research data both quantitative and qualitative, making them ready for sharing and following IRB and HIPAA guidance. 

David has been out promoting “De-Identifying” for some time now.

Here’s all the information you'll need about the workshop:

“With researchers increasingly encouraged or required to share their data, preparing to share datasets with confidential identifiers of people and organizations is particularly challenging. Join JHU Data Management Services for an overview of techniques for assessing disclosure risk and hiding personal identifiers in quantitative and qualitative data, in compliance with IRB and HIPAA guidance. They also discuss preparing consent forms that facilitate data sharing, and keeping identifier data secure during and after projects. This workshop is free to the JHU community and aimed at faculty, staff and graduate students from all disciplines.

Monday, Oct. 12, 12:00PM1PM, 2024 E. Monument St., 2nd Floor Room 2-1002

To attend, please RSVP through the Welch Library course registration site (seats will likely be available on the day of the event)
